Melbourne City comes ALIVE (well sort of) with the annual and traditional Zombie Shuffle.

The annual Walk is fast becoming quite the tourist attraction for locals and visitors to downtown Melbourne, Australia.

The Zombie invasion begins at a centrally located point somewhere in the central business district. This is usually announced on the official website and throughout social media channels.

The public dress in their very best or worst zombie costumes and proceed to stagger, shuffle and drag themselves through the city streets scaring as many people as they can.

The Walk is open to all ages and sizes, alive or dead.

This year, 2019, the Melbourne Zombie Walk will take place in Queensbridge Square Southbank and participants will amble their way along the CBD and loop back to the starting point.

Event start at 10 am with the official Zombie Walk starting at 4:00pm and and finishing back at the starting point where zombies can fist pump their rotting arms until the sun goes down. 

Spectators are encouraged to join in the fun and photos are always welcome.

However, please show the courtesy of asking if you may take a photo, particularly of any children who are attending.

The festivities include MUSIC, MAKEUP, MARKETS.

Accompanied by grunts, groans, howling and an occasional blood curdling scream, the zombies shuffle along the streets and laneways searching for that allusive brain food.

Becoming quite an annnual tourist attraction the procession provides excellent subject matter for the budding photographer to try their skills at capturing the atmosphere.

Not only is this special day becoming a tourist attraction but for some families it is fast becomming a tradition that will no doubt be handed down through the generations.

Never know, in years to come some of the processions may be accommpanied with real Zombie family members wandering beside their own families!

You never know ... might even be happening this very day and age!
